The Prototype of Secondary Education in the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries

Alice Mary Stines, Fordham University

Abstract

The Jesuit school system, built up by the united efforts of many intellects was the prototype of education in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. This system during the three and a half centuries of its existence has rendered immense service to civilization by organizing a system of education far superior to any yet seen in Europe. The Jesuits did much for the advancement of education in almost every country of the world, but nowhere have they been more fruitful than in the school of America, for it is principally to the schools in Maryland and Pennsylvania that we owe the development of the Catholic parochial school system in the United states and has struck it's roots deeper and more firmly into the Catholic mind with every year that has elapsed. Its growth has kept pace with the growth of the Church.
